“It's a good place for a short stay”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We took a short break to the sun. Chose the Melia as it is one of the best hotels in Torremolinos and very conveniently located for both the beach and the many restaurants in the area.

As previous contributors have said, the pool is rather small and the sun drops behind the hotel at about 3pm so if you want to sit out all day in the sun, you would probably be better going over to the beach - sun beds €4.50 for the day. The small pool is really the only negative point. The hotel does provides pool/beach towels - very important for those all important cabin baggage only trips.

Breakfast is good. Plenty of choice of both hot and cold options, and is served until 11 am allowing for a good lie-in.

We didn't dine at either the buffet or the Al la carte restaurant as there are some good options available near the hotel. I can particularly recommend El Sabor and the El Gato lounge for good quality food and wine, with first class service.

Room Tip: Try for a room on a high floor

I hope our American cousins don't get offended with the "Title of the Review". But the hotel while we were staying there,was used for coach tours to show them the delights of Spain, that we the British take for granted.
The Melia good location right opposite the beach,the room we had (468) had the sunny in the afternoon. Clean and tidy of a good standard and I must say the housekeeping staff that looked after our room were excellent .
Reception staff when we booked in was very helpful, the young lady that saw to us could not have been better.
The food is of a good standard, plenty to eat for breakfast and I don't think you could have any complaints. The evening meal though was a different kettle of fish,plenty to eat but not a great variety if you are staying for more than a week. My wife struggled in our 10 days here to have a enjoyable evening meal ( a fussy eater). My complaint if it is one that the restaurant is very noisy more like a up market canteen!
The pool area is no way big enough for the size of the hotel, but across the road there is a very big pool with sand to boot.
Overall we are enjoying our stay at the Melia and would come back here or their sister hotels(sol hotels) in the resort

Room Tip: Ask reception if you want sun in the morning or afternoon,mostly rooms that face the pool and that a...

We had a two night stay here at block A with a pool and sea view. View was great, but noise from the pool side can be disturbing in the evening.Central location along the tourist strip.
Conveniently close to all the great restaurants.
Room was clean and tidy. Spacious. Great free wifi in our room.
Breakfast was good, and food was plentiful.
Good service.

My wife and I stayed here from 19/09./2013 - 29/09/2013, ist time here and we had an excellent holiday. It is modern, very clean and the staff are really friendly and helpful.
The rooms are not huge but are well furnished and kitted out and more than adequate for a 2 people. The air con worked well, also flat screen tv with English channels, and a fridge and free room safe. The restaurant was very modern, like a 'Bistro' for all meals as well as a separate snack bar. There was also a bar for pre or post dinner drinks.
The free wi fi was good.
Only a couple of negative comments - Noisey coaches on a morning collecting travellers for day trips or continuing their whistle stop tour of Spain.
At evening dinner the hotel had signs informing guests that no beachwear/shorts/flip flops etc were to be worn, but they did not enforce this, was a shame really as it was such a nice restaurant and the food was really good quality. You would think that some guests would dress smart / casual as befits a 4 star hotel.
Would we stay there again - yes - definitely - the hotel is in an excellent position for walks along the promenade or up the steps to the cafes / bars etc in the main town area of Torremolinos

We stayed at Melia for four nights. Service and breakfast were suberb. We took the junior suite because it costed only little more than the standart room and it had a great big terrace with a sea view. The only thing we did not like was that the pool area was small.

As soon as we walked into the lobby we felt the elegance of this hotel yet you knew it was a beachfront hotel. The staff was great, The beach across the street from the hotel was lovely. The breakfast buffet was all that you could think of. Highly recommend this hotel. The best hotel we stayed at while touring Spain.

We normally stay in a Melia hotel when we visit Spain and we first stayed here over Christmas and New Year. It was a great place for Christmas dinner and the New Year party was fantastic. We had no hesitation in booking a weeks stay during October. Large hotel that caters for bus parties or couples alike. The staff are very friendly and helpfull. I look forward to coming back here and I am sure time and time again.
